Crime and Punishment – The Story of Corporal Punishment (1 x 60′ ) – A documentary that lifts the veil on the taboo that is corporal punishment, revealing a fascinating history spanning religion, the justice system, sex and education. Today it is rarely discussed in public, but it’s not that long since corporal punishment was seen as routine.
